Show Notes

What started as a small Mediterranean restaurant, is now expanding to over a dozen locations all over Ontario. In 2020, Tahini's restaurant converted it's cash reserves into Bitcoin, and continues to chant the Bitcoin mantra after seeing a massive ROI. They've gained notoriety from the Bitcoin community and has even got the attention of Michael Saylor when he changed his profile picture to include a Tahini's hat.

Last Monday, March 28th, Conservative MP and potential Federal Party leader Pierre Poilievre attended a Bitcoin meetup at a Tahini's London Ontario as part of his announcement to make Canada a leader in the blockchain space. Poilievre and Aly Hamam (founder of Tahini's) sat down over Shisha to discuss the revolutionary impact of Bitcoin.
